1888 Utah missionary to Denmark, Gearson S. Bastian, received a manifestation from the Lord while serving his mission. What was the manifestation?
a.                  The gift of discernment
b.                  The gift of healing
c.                   The gift of vision
d.                  The gift of speaking in tongues
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  Chief Guffick
Another Chief who was a friend to the white settlers was Chief Santaquin, a son of Chief Guffick. Chief Santaquin has become a legend in the city that bears his name for befriending the Mormon settlers as his father, Chief Guffick, had done.
In the year 1855 Chief Guffick had listened to his tribesman plot to attack the white settlers who were in Santaquin. They were camped on the bench southeast of town. During the night the chief came down to town and warned them. He told Benjamin F. Johnson about their plans, and so the whites fled to Payson for safety. The next morning Chief Guffick accompanied the Indians to make their attack, and when they got there, they found the place deserted. He then told them that the Great Spirit had warned the settlers to flee. Thereafter, the Indians believed that the white settlers of Santaquin were being divinely protected.
